are reaction to a little-known amateur movie produced in the united states which ridiculed the prophet mohammed. it gained attention because an obscure florida pastor began promoting it, the same man who triggered deadly riots in afghanistan when he threatened to burn the koran. we want to go straight to cairo where we find nbc chief foreign correspondent, richard engel. richard, fill us in a little more this morning. >> reporter: good morning. a libyan source has told nbc news that the u.s. ambassador who was visiting the consulate was killed along with three others. not sure of the nationality of those three others. the u.s. state department has not confirmed this, but this has been told to us by a senior security source in libya. we've been also told that the libyan prime minister and the libyan president will both be speaking today about this subject, offering their condolences to the united states and to the family of the fallen ambassador. and this is according to the report. we were told that when gunmen and a mob stormed the consulate building, they first attacked it with rpgs, then the
are having to adjust and they believe the united states is weak and they are taking appropriate action. bill: also over the weekend congressman mike rogers, chairman of the house intelligence committee and former fbi agent echoed that sentiment. >> the countries of middle east believe there is a disengagement policy by the united states and that lack of leadership there or at least clarity on what our position is causing problems. i, if we all decide to rally around the video as the problem we're going to make a serious mistake and we're going to make i think diplomatic mistakes as we move forward if we think that is the only reason people are showing up at our embassy to conduct acts violence. bill: the romney campaign says the obama administration is failing to throughout that part of the world. heather: there is more trouble brewing between israel and iran as a nightmare scenario could be coming close to reality. prime minister benjamin netanyahu says the iran will be the on the brink of nuclear capabilities in just six months. he use ad metaphor to describe the new emergency and claims t
's a crude film. they know it has nothing to do with the united states government. it is an excuse. one intelligence person told me, if you scratch the surface, and if you gave every street vendor from street vendor to prime minister in that region a chance to throw a rock at the u.s. embassy, they would. so this is their excuse. >> look at what's happening in afghanistan 11 years later. >> and look what's happening in afghanistan. and is it just me? willie, is it just me, or is it -- we have the grave concern about the tragedy that happened to the ambassador and our people that have served so proudly for, you know, for the state department who were killed. and yet this weekend, more u.s. troops in afghanistan gunned down by our supposed allies. this happens every day. this happens every day. and yes, our u.s. ambassador being killed is just absolutely horrific. but every single day, young american men and women are gunned down in afghanistan. >> 51 of them this year on insider attacks. 51 nato troops including many americans this year. >> nobody's talking about it. >> to your point exa
because he is a living safely in exile in the united states ever since. on friday, bolivian president r. ellis said the obama administration had rejected bolivia's extradition request on the grounds of civilian leader cannot be tried for a military's crimes. morales called the was a paradise of impunity. >> the u.s. cannot send a letter saying civil society cannot be responsible for military actions. i reject these claims. i do not agree. this is a pretext for the u.s. to turn into a haven for delinquents in a paradise of impunity. it is easy for us to see that a country that is never respected the dignity and sovereignty of latin america cannot extradite someone is done so much harm to the libyan people and works for the american empire. th>> to see a full interview wih president morales you can go to democracynow.org. in a separate move, this government has filed a court briefing declaring former presidenmexican president saddad joys amenity for connecticut civil suit for alleged war crimes. the suit accuses him of responsibility for 1997 massacre in a village of acteal when governmen
discoverries, make it a bigger play for the united states of america to reduce imports. the president said last week in his acceptance speech, if we follow his plan we will be off imports by 2020. that is a nonsense statement. there is nothing in the president's plan that would bring us anywhere close unless we reduce demand by continued recession and use ever less oil which is one of the reasons that we have changed the import relationship, reduced demand because people can't afford to buy oil in this day and age at these prices. so they are reducing demand. but in terms of increasing production --. melissa: your bottom line argument is that we shouldn't step off the gas in other development areas just because we think that all of this other supply is coming on board? is there evidence that is what is going on? >> no. we've been emphasizing the shale plays because it is private land, with state permits. you know, drilling on federal lands is down 40% over the last three years. we have decreased our investments under federal jurisdiction while we have increased private and state jurisdictional
for president of the united states, for god's sake. what are you going to do? >> david gregory, they just went round and round and round. and it was like jell-o. he could not get mitt romney to stand still on anything except to promise tax cuts without in any way specifying how they were going to get paid for it. >> yeah. exactly. i'm not going to raise taxes on the american people. >> are we being too tough on these two guys, or were they really, really general in your eyes, too? >> they continue to amaze me, both the principles romney and ryan and their staff, they come to these shows with no news to me. and so the news they're going to make is news that's negative from their point of view. i thought, you know, they know what questions they're going to get. one thing we haven't discussed yet about romney is his answer about why he didn't mention the troops in his speech at the convention. he got asked about it and gave a very weak answer. >> he was also asked -- >> he was asked again and gave an even weaker answer. >> somebody who is really facing this unemployment crisis head on. and again,
by how scared the president of the united states looked, how disoriented he looked, how it seemed like they did not know where they were going. and i just want to do a hat tip right here, which, again, in this environment you probably aren't supposed to do. you know what? while george bush looked scared and disoriented that day, that day only, rudy giuliani stepped up. and he became america's mayor on that day. and he kept people advised of what was going on and was a great leader for that time. >> it was one of the great acts of spiritual and popular leadership that we'll ever see. and, you know, mayor giuliani is a big churchillian. but he was reading and looking at in those days and weeks a book by john lucash called "five days of may" in may of 1940 between churchill and chamberlain and halifax. and it was a marvelous case of leadership of being there. >> well, and like churchill and we're not comparing him to churchill, but for that time, though, like churchill, part of it was leadership, part of it was a great act. telling people, and by the way, that's what kept the british peop
are not listing seeing this in the united states, but around the world. reporter: that interview served up a softball to republican vice presidential nominee paul ryan. >> for years and her presidency and incomplete? the president is asking people to be patient with them. >> white house officials insist it is not due because the president has previously graded himself with and incomplete. that is true. they are not mentioning just one year into his presidency, he deserved a solid a+ and adding that passing health care made him deserve it least a a- >> i give him an a for effort. i give him an a for making sure that americans are better off today than they were four years ago. i do believe that we need four more years. reporter: a majority of the electorate seems to disagree and may be looking for results rather than effort, with unemployment at a .3%, and gas prices now close to $4 per gallon and the national debt costing $16 trillion. when asked by the newspaper, the hill, whether the president deserves a second term, 60% said no and 40% said yes. the president made clear today that the l
. when you see these numbers, you'll say there has to be a way. in 2011, the united states took in about $1.1 trillion in income taxes. individual. but look at the bottom number below it. i mean, this makes my jaws drop. total tax break, credits, exclusions, your mortgage interest duction, state and local taxes. more money than we took in. okay, whatever you think about specific deduction, this screen is everything you need to know about how our tax system is really broken. so ending the state and local deduction alone would be $862.2 billion. the mortgage interest deduction, $214.6 billion. now, those are exactly the deductions mitt romney said he'd cut at a close doored fund-raiser in april. a reporter at the event wrote quote mitt romney said i'm probably going to eliminate for high income people, the second home mortgage deduction, romney said, adding he would also eliminate for state and property taxes. he made it clear it's for higher income people he wants to get rid of some of these deductions and mitt romney's defenders -- they can make the math work, so can that they? one is do
made here in the united states. >> u.s. marines being called in as enforcements in been gone sea. >> the romney campaign already drafted a critical statement saying the obama administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions but to sympathize with those that waged the attacks. here's the problem with that. the romney statement was sent to reporters just after 10:00 p.m. on tuesday with the caveat it not be released until after midnight. it was sent before many of the facts were gathered. the statement is wrong because the obama administrations official statement from the secretary of state released just before the romney statement reads like this. i condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in benghazi today. our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. but let me be clear there is never any justification for violent attacks of this kind pf clinton's statement does not sympathize. anybody that tells you it did is lying. if you believe it did, you are misguided. even a statement released ear
was one of those people who dedicated his life to reconciliation between the arab and the united states. he was a peace corps volunteer. he joined the foreign service and obviously committed his life to not only reconstruction and rehabilitation of arab societies, but also focused on libya quite a bit. >> in speaking to americans, and muslims today throughout the washington area, we heard the same message over and over. they hope that the assassination of ambassador stevens does not derail the partnership between the united states and the new libya. wendy and jim? >> christ gordon, thank you. we will be continuing to follow this story. we'll have more on the deadly attacks. the violent protest in the middle east, and there is also new reaction to this. you can also stay up to date on nbcwashington.com. >>> for the second time in three weeks, prince george's county is dealing tonight with the murder of a high school student. both crimes remain unsolved. pat collins joins us from capitol heights. pat? >> reporter: jim, one killed in her home, another killed walking to school. two teenager
much. may god bless you. may god bless the american people. and may god bless the united states of america. >>> the obama campaign senior adviser says don't expect the same level of voter enthusiasm for president obama this year like it was in 2008. >> this election was always going to be close because we live in a closely divided country. i remind people all the time that just four years ago everyone was talking about the president's landslide and he got 53% of the vote. so let's understand that we live in a very closely divided electorate. we have for quite some time, and this election was, quite frankly, always going to be close. >> meanwhile, mitt romney's reportedly spending the next few days preparing for the upcoming presidential debates which begin next month. as the party gets ready for its national convention in charlotte, north carolina, preparations are well under way at the time warner cable arena in charlotte. hello to you, chris. >> reporter: alex, good afternoon. the opening of the democratic national convention is still two days away but there's still plenty pla
been made of their failure to invest and promote the pepsi brand for soda within the united states. how relevant now is the home market for investors when, for example, coke is suggesting they will invest $30 billion over the next two or three years with the bot lers to double consumption around the world? >> it's a great question. so there's been a terrific change of heart at pepsi. this year about $600 million of advertising spending behind the businesses, the bulk of that is going to happen in north america. you probably just saw they sign add deal with the nfl. clearly they feel the pressure and want to start growing some of their businesses here at home again. >> and how does that compare to mao tau kent and the mass everybody bottlers worldwide. >> remember, coke bought their bottle in the u.s. so they have a lot more skin in the game. the good die naming here on the beverage side is guys are kind of getting along and playing nicely for the first time in a while. i think they want to make more money. they're cognizant of the economic. they're making the pack sizes smaller and lift
in mexico, more than 130 inmates are on the run. police are blocking roads leading to the united states after a major prison break. they're offering a $15,000 reward as well for the fugitives who escaped from a prison about 150 miles from san antonio. police say they were able to burrow through a tunnel. >>> atlanta, nashville, new york city and the possibility of tornadoes. we'll get right to meteorologist rob marciano in atlanta. how are things looking this morning? >> wet to start and stormy to finish is the way you implied it as well. tennessee yesterday over 6 inches of rainfall, knoxville seeing 3 inches. that's a record. in places in arkansas they needed the rain. there were areas in alabama that saw swift water rescues taking place because of the flooding. heavy rain from pittsburgh through charleston. this is shifting towards the east. it will get towards the i-95 corridor from d.c. to baltimore, starting to slide into philadelphia right now in through new york city. even coastal flooding possible with winds as we get later on into the day. here comes the heavy rain. the foreca
're seeing through the lens. how are things both in the united states and europe. >> and china? >> let's talk about the u.s. in almost every business, there are pockets of real success. let's take, for example, the enormous burst in rental housing. the command for rental housing is incredible. so we're in the home supply business. we do cabinet doors, home depot, supply, we do vanities and things like that. we sell vanity kits as fast as you possibly make to landlocked and multifamily housing who put these things in. we charge $500, they increase the rent $100 a month, the pay back is in months, and the game is on. people are renovating rental places and motels and hotels because they're occupied. three years ago they were taking a room in a motel, tearing it apart, bringing the fixture over and fixing the other room that was leaking. now they're renovating those things. so the home rental idea is moving strongly. you take the marcellus fields, we can't get pipe up there fast enough. we can't get pre-fab buildings up there fast enough. i mean, i'm not talking marcellus, i'm talking north dako
